Deep in the heart of the Chugach National Forest these films were made. The people and events were documented as part of a process to research and discover a sustainable way of life in the nature yet in cooperation and symbiosis with civilization. These documentary shorts were shot in and around a small town on the edge of the wilderness- a place facing the onslaught of urban sprawl and the ever-present magnificent majestic mountain splendor, temperate rainforest, exotic wildlife, and eccentric people from all over the world. That is what you will find in this collection. This historic archive of student films has made history in Alaska. Aspiring writers, photographers, and video editors teamed up with ecologists and professionals from the community to produce these educational works of art and science. Enjoy.
